    I was wondering if anyone had found any information on discrimation lawsuits dealing with Fibromyalgia? I am especially interested in topics such as discrimination including ADA, objective findings versus subjective symptoms, and the classification of fibromyalgia as a psychological illness rather than a physical illness. I have found that these are the top reasons that have been used in denial cases. Has anyone had any luck finding cases or websites that deal with these topics? I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has had any of these reasons used in any of there disability cases.

    E-mailed the Senator of our local district after I was told by a SS lawyer that I wouldn't have a case because the judges in my district did not believe in Fibromyalgia !!!!
